I have a user on the domain that insists she does not receive a password expiration warning even though she performs a fresh login each day.  The domain policy is set to notify the user 14 days before the password expires.  I have not heard of any other users complaining about this issue.  Would there be anything either on the domain controller or on the user's computer that could verify that the password expiration warning pop up message actually occured on her computer?

I'm not sure if you can verify the pop-up appears... you can always see how long she has left...

Have when it gets down to the 14 day mark or less, go over to her PC have her sign out sign back in and show her that little pop-up that says your pass will expire in xx days is the pop-up you were talking about.

Thanks. I'm gong to do what you are recommending but passwords expires every 90 days and I didn't want to wait that long to see what happens.  Guess I might have to.
